I was reading the forum with others having the same problem. Read someone's post about pumping and holding the brake while try


Anyhow... The pumping and holding the brake while trying to crank it, actually worked !!! Moved it back underneath it's shelter, cut it off, tried to crank back, but wouldn't, until I did the brake thing again !!! Okay, what's up with this ??? :(


Started long enough to drive down to corner store... Left running, drive it home, hasn't started since !! Help :(
